Sports Betting Odds – Harry Kane has not turned up to Tottenham training, with speculation over a move to Manchester City rife. Harry Kane publicly hinted in June that he wished to leave Spurs and City have since had a £100m bid for the striker turned down.
Kane is valued at upwards of £120m and Tottenham are keen to keep him despite the striker believing he has a gentleman’s agreement with Daniel Levy.

Levy, who has appointed Juventus’ former football officer Fabio Paratici as the club’s new managing director of football, said in June he sympathises with Kane’s frustrations about the lack of silverware at Spurs, but hinted a deal could be difficult to do.
Man City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, meanwhile, said after last season’s Champions League final that the club will be “competitive and aggressive” this summer, and are aiming to strengthen by bringing “quality to the squad in a couple of key positions”.
The striker remains desperate to depart this summer, although the Citizens have since turned their attention to Jack Grealish. Now, as reported by Sky Sports News, Kane is said to have failed to report to training.
He was scheduled to kick off his pre-season preparations today after a short holiday, following his involvement for England at Euro 2020.
Tottenham remain in talks with Atalanta over a deal for centre-back Cristian Romero.
Spurs have made an offer of at least £34m (€40m) for the Argentina international but no fee has been agreed with the Italian club.
Personal terms with the 23-year-old are not expected to be a problem if the two clubs can agree a fee, with Tottenham prepared to give Romero a five-year deal plus an option of a further year.
Tottenham’s new managing director of football Fabio Paratici has intensified discussions over Romero, who also attracted interested from Manchester United earlier this summer, after already sealing a loan deal for Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.
